More non-Va. gun owners get permits

Virginia is issuing a rising number of concealed-carry gun permits to people who live in other states in a trend that may be helped along by online gun classes.

The commercial courses allow applicants to seek a permit from Virginia that is valid in their state, but without having to meet tougher requirements their home states may impose, such as firing a gun with an instructor.

Virginia State Police issued 1,632 concealed-carry permits to nonresidents through the first half of 2012, topping the previous year’s total of 1,321 nonresident permits. There was no corresponding increase in demand for resident permits, with just less than half the previous year’s number reached by mid-2012.

There are no hard numbers to explain why nonresident permits are soaring because state police do not track how many people take online training compared with other types of training.

2. My wife kicked ass in her live fire training I gave her.

I always knew she was a pretty good offhand shot, but not until she got her 38 did I realize how well she can shoot.

With a little more work on being aware of her surroundings (something women seem to take for granted) I think she'll make a pretty responsible carrier.


No to get her some of those "people shaped" targets.

3. Great news for those

that have never fired a handgun and can't pass a test that requires more than a 3rd grade education. This way they can have their 4th grader take the 20 question, true or false test for them and actually get 15 of those questions right.

You'd think this interstate commerce might get regulated by the federal government. After all this will mean big money for match book schools that offer the course. Those qualified instructors can find new work.

Spend a couple of bucks on a DU membership and post about other topics and refrain from posting about the poster and not the post..

11. Glad to see ...

 

... you corrected that. You were stalking the wrong profile, Einstein.

P.S. I'm surprised that while you were peeking at my profile you didn't notice this isn't even my favourite group. So, I'm not sure what you mean about posting to other forums.

16. Most likely

because they break the rules also.
I'd bet more ideologs on both sides get alerted on. Not many of us reasonable folks have that problem.

18. I had a post hidden because I used a favorite word of Hoyt's

I had another post hidden by a "troll hunter" that alerted that I wasn't "progressive" enough for DU.

Seems like the pot is calling the kettle black.

And since I am applying for disability and haven't worked in two years, maybe you can tell me how my money is best spent.

17. Are you a Democrat, democrat, progressive, or Progressive.

We used to have a poster here who thought anyone that was pro 2A was a repuke troll. They'd ask if you were a democrat, Democrat, progressive, or Progressive.

20. "Once you label me ...

 

... you negate me." -- Kierkegaard

However, so I might be fully-accepted by the committee for doctrinal purity, I am ...

... a registered Democrat (absentee voter)
... socially liberal
... fiscal libertarian (think David Lloyd George)
... Conservative Jew (that isn't what you think it is)
... NRA Member
... card-carrying member of the Costco Buyers' Club
... subscriber to TV Guide

Hopefully, that will please the Komisar, and he'll accept me as a TRUE Democrat.
